Charlie's Bird

living the dream with Charlie and Thandi and chirping all the way back to the nest.


… guys, my baby girl is growing up! Grade 1 orientation, here we go. Today she got to meet her new class teacher, see her classroom (which is actually my old sub A classroom) and checked out who is in her class. It’s a bit bittersweet, her 3 besties and her have been split up, but these little bonds seem strong, so with play dates and fun times, we’ll stay buddies! It’s a normal strategy with the school, so they meet everyone, but still.

And again, with every celebration she has, my mamma heart rejoices in her joy and crumbles with despair. My little girl is growing up. Mom, is this how you felt when you sent me off into the world, did it scare you so much you couldn’t breath either? How do I keep these memories, I’m already forgetting stuff? I wish you were still here to help me do this…

All the more reason to keep writing. I started my blog specifically to keep a record of all the small things, thoughts and memories for my girls
